For as long as I can remember, I’ve had to wash my hair every day. It’s just something I had always done and my hair was used to getting a good clean everyday. Over time, I envied my friends volumised, messy ‘dos and realised I had to stop washing my hair.
My hair is fine, soft and hard to manage. I overcome this by using various products, but my hair is so much easier to manage now I can go a few days with washing (not to mention the extra time in bed).
It’s taken me a couple of months to go more than a day without washing, and I’ve found some absolute gems that I simply cannot live without.
The first one I have reviewed before (here
) and this is the Phyto Clarifying Detox Shampoo. I honestly cannot praise this enough, it’s THE product which I can thank for my hair going from fine and flat and being washed every day to it’s current wonderful state.
This is a detox shampoo, you use it once a week to thoroughly cleanse the hair, removing product build up and extending the amount of time between washes. It’s similar to the Bumble & Bumble Sunday Shampoo, and although I love B+B I have to say I prefer Phytos offering.
After using this shampoo I can go two or three days without washing which is amazing and I need to use a lot less product in my hair. If you’re trying to cut down on washing, I highly recommend using this once a week, it’s a great shampoo.
After using the above shampoo, my hair needs a little bit of conditioner, one that isn’t too heavy and won’t weigh down hair. As I said, my hair is rather fine so rich conditioners just leave it flat and weighed down. I love Phyto products and this Phytobaume conditioner is really light and great for the ends of my hair when I need conditioner. I don’t always use conditioner, but I find I do need it after using the Detox shampoo. Only use conditioner on the ends of your hair, a small amount will do.
It depends what hair type you have, so you may have a conditioner which suits you but I really rate this one from Phyto.
In between washes, I usually don’t need dry shampoo the next day, although by the second day and definitely the 3rd I’m reaching for this Ojon Dry Cleansing Spray (dry shampoo by another name) which is incredible as it leaves NO trace of powder in your hair. You don’t have a grey, powdery mop but you do have a beautiful, oil-free, volumised head of hair.
I absolutely love this dry shampoo, it’s great as a volumising product and I use it often. It’s amazing to finally get hold of dry shampoo which leaves no trace in your hair.
Keep up the no washing and you will notice that the time between washes gets longer and longer. I love when my hair is still shiny and clean on the second and third days, but it has taken a little while to get to this point. I really couldn’t have done it without these products.
Are there any products you recommend for oily hair?
